Erick van Egeraat’s Sberbank University receives building permit, Russia

Erick van Egeraat’s design for the new Sberbank University has been formally approved by the Moscow regional state expertise. The Dutch architect won the international competition for the new 32.000m2 corporate University in 2010.

“To win a prestigious competition is great, but my Architecture is not just an idea, it is there to be build. To meet and exceed any building requirements worldwide is a matter of enduring professionalism and leadership by our office. This, and an overall cooperative spirit amongst the many companies involved in the realization will ensure a striking end result.“ Says Erick van Egeraat.

Sberbank is Russia’s largest and oldest state run bank with over 250.000 employees and 20.000 branch offices in the country. The new Sberbank University will provide education, seminars and team building programs to the company’s top professionals, to continuously improve their performance within the corporate standards. The most prominent Russian bank implies the highest standards for its employees and therefore it aimed for the most ambitious educational project in terms of design and quality.

The University site is located in a delicate suburban, almost rural setting bordered by woodlands on the South and Istra river on the North.The delicate nature of this environment provided both opportunities as challenges to the development.

According to the Moscow regional state expertise Erick van Egeraat’s design not only met the environmental challenges but ensured a durable balance between nature and development. The University will consist of education and conference spaces, dormitories, guest teacher quarters, teacher housing, a club building and sports facilities. The complex fully integrates sustainable design tools and technologies, putting sustainability in the centre of the corporate agenda.

The spacious and picturesque setting allows for a campus model; the program’s distribution on site creates comfortably scaled public spaces that intensifies interaction with the natural surroundings. Education, lodging and sports functions are each clustered in orthogonally defined volumes. Taking into account the climate, all building elements except the teachers’ housing are connected with an elegant and climate controlled colonnade. This colonnade is programmed with recreational, bar, relaxation functions and serves as an identifying backbone of the entire complex.

“The Sberbank University – campus is a benchmark in many respects, it incorporates the ambition of an organization to be transparent, solid and durable. At the same time the buildings meet the highest standards in sustainability. As a non-Russian Architect I can only be proud of be trusted this responsibility by my clients.“ Says Erick van Egeraat.

The Sberbank University will be completed in 2013.

Erick van Egeraat receives Italian US Award
Rotterdam, 5 February 2010 – Erick van Egeraat has received the second prize of the ‘US Award 2009 – Workplace: Quality and Innovation’ in the category ‘Architecture’ for the office buildings in the Milanofiori North mixed-use development in Milan, Italy. The award ceremony was held on Wednesday 3 February 2010 at the headquarters of ll Sole 24 Ore in Milan, the main financial media in Italy.

Erick van Egeraat’s design for the Milanofiori Business Park was chosen from more than 100 international entries. Erick van Egeraat’s project was honoured for the quality of the masterplan and the architectural-functional-ecological mix, that marks the project’s innovative character as a new southern gateway to Milan.

Special attention in the design was given to energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy.
The buildings are designed in close relationship with the environment, the utilisation and the consumption of energy sources.
The facade cladding is, in order to control heat dispersion, carried out according to the latest available techniques.
The technological systems feature a good energy performance and solar panels are used to produce energy.

According to the jury, “Milanofiori North aims at being a district on a human-scale, with a high environmental quality, where architecture and landscape will complement each other perfectly. Besides complying with sustainability standards as to composition, technology and materials (bio-building, solar panels), it also provides for the enhancement of the surrounding wooden areas.”

This was the second consecutive year that the US Awards were awarded. The annual competition, organised by the US-Ufficio Stile Magazine, identifies excellence in the planning of working environments in Europe and at the same time promotes and spreads the culture of quality and innovation in workplaces.
